Le Grand Legend
MISS CHILLY HUNG | Kennedy Town Praya, Hong Kong | 10/03/2001

"Legendary musician, pianist and composer Michel Legrand brings an incredible depth of understanding, feeling and passion to the production of this great CD. The intensity of Laura's brilliant performance is beautifully countered by the soft lyrical playing of Michel on piano. Laura manages to capture the magic moment romantically. As the title suggest, we are given a taste of all the different collaborations Michel went through in his exceptional career as a pianist, generating very different moods. This CD is not only a collection of great compositions of Michel, like, 'The summer knows', 'The windmills of your mind', and 'Ask yourself why' but is also a testimony to the abundant talent of Laura in her unique interpretation of 'The first time', 'You had to be there' and of course 'Rachel' - A splendid composition written by Michel especially for Laura. BIG in every sense of the work this must count amongst Laura's finest work. A gem of a CD."
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE??

"It usually takes several listening sessions for me to establish a liking for an lesser known singer, but once I realized Legrand did the arranging, I figured this CD has to be top notch and classy! Where has this singer been?? Her singing is superb and soothing -- just perfect for that candlelight dinner or that snuggle-up-to-me type moment. Legrand never ceases to amaze, and his earlier works with Lena Horne, Nancy Wilson (live!), and Stephan Grappelli are knockout performances. All song arrangements here are lush and dreamy...nothing "torchy" here. The best "mood" disc to come around in a long time - just amazed that it took me 4 years after its release to discover it."
